He played AJ on GH. It's a shame he's had so many problems with alcohol because he's totally hot! I hope he gets some help.

If I'm not mistaken, he was the original AJ on General Hospital.

One more celeb drunk and dangerous and will get away with murder in Hollywood. California should be kicked out of the USA for its licenciousness and easyness on drunkards and drug users. If you are a drunk or like to use drugs and drve and get away with it, move to California. Hello Trent, is that why you moved to California?.

Sean,

Actually was very open about being an alcoholic in the press while still on soaps. . It is very sad to hear that he is once again having trouble with his disease.

It does not matter if he is hot or not the fact remains that he was driving under the influence and that is not HOT. why would he admit guilt when he was asked instead of being told that ' you were driving under the influence'. I know it is the law but certain people are not entitled to any rights such as rapists, child molesters, muderers and drunk drivers and armed robbers (specially) after they beat a double murder case!

Alcohol is not a disease, it's an addiction! If you were stranded on a desert island with no alcohol, you may get cancer (a real disease), but you wouldn't be an alcoholic!! Come on people, alcohol is a choice! I have no sympathy for the celebrats that think they are above the law-the courts need to start throwing the book at them!

I’m not condoning this behavior, but the sad truth is that everyone at some point has had a couple of beers and driven. With BAC being .08, the average person can only have (2) beers in one hour and be at the legal limit. The beers can also only be 4.5% alcohol, which most are above that.

The government should give the public a way to accurately determine their own BAC before driving, rather than giving us a formula that works in “theory.” If not, the rule should then be zero tolerance. It’s like asking everyone to follow the speed limit and removing speedometers out of the cars. You know when your way over, but not when your close. However, if you have 5 beers in an hour and decide to drive, you know for a fact your above the legal limit and shouldn’t be driving.

I believe Billy Warlock was the original AJ, Sean was most recently on Bold and Beautiful as Deacon. He is definitely an admitted alcoholic. Hopefully this is the wake up call he needs!
